Katrina Katrina, I love you sooo...

So, here is a quick roundup: The Armed forces finally got deployed: Bush orderd 7000 troops to the Gulf, and some of them saying they are ready for Somalia like combat, with the US vowing to end New Orleans violent crime Wave. The last of the refugees evacuate, leaving the superdome of horrors, and the people got bused to Texas! The criticism doesn't stop though: A BBC journalist has said that a third World Dictator would've handeld it better. Yeah, because in a third world dictatorship, there are no elected governers. The Louisiana Governer dropped the ball people, not Bush. However, since she is a democrat and a woman, there is less of an attack on her, even though she has yet to survey the damage and visit the plighted areas. Because let's face it, you don't want to blame a democrat for mishandeling the crisis now, not when you can blame Bush. Right? :) Now is it just me, or does it seem like the world is gloating over this disaster? Hmmm..... Anyway.... For a nice look at a completely unbiased opinion, please check the Huffington post, the Bush hate level there is super-high! The Huffington Post: We have no opinions, except against Bush! And for what has to be an act of extreme stupidity, Kanye West blasts Bush in the Middle of a live-televised Benefit for the Red Cross, claiming that he doesn't care about black people and that the government is delaying the aid because the victims are black, which cause the Phone lines to be filled with complaints instead of donations. But then again, what do you expect from the son of a former Black Panther who believes the CIA gives people Aids? Too bad that I like his music. Guess my Fats Domino education will start sooner than I thought! However, not to be outdone in "the most self-involved black person" Category, Jesse Jackson decided to blast Bush for- get this- not being included as a coordinator for the fundraising efforts for Katrina relief: "Why are there no African Americans in that circle?" Jackson asked. "How can blacks be left out of the leadership and trapped into the suffering?" Oh, I don't know, but I am sure something racist is afoot there Jesse. Say, who is stopping you from raising aid for Katrina anyway? Or Can you only do it when you are with Bush and Clinton? I am sure the Media attention those 2 would get has absolutely nothing to do with it at all. God I love this shit!

Yea, good job but you missed this.

I had read Poe in High School (back when dirt was rock) and I thought that he was crazy. My Teacher said to be am excellent writer, being mad was a prerequisite.

I think you have an excellent chance.
